Dirty to the Graveby Karen P. Williams
Karen Williams, author of Harlem on Lock and The People Vs. Cashmere, brings you this dark street tale. Follow the highs and lows of Cha, Goldie, and Red, who come together for fun, laughs, and sometimes treachery in Long Beach, California. For these three ladies, survival was always about getting over by using lies, deceit, and sex. But when a plan goes dangerously wrong, Cha and Goldie take a step back out of the life. Cha desperately wants to rid herself of the demons of her past so she can at least feel normal enough to raise her son, Omari. Goldie ain't feeling the hood life anymore. She's tired of going from man to man, and knows her parents are rolling over in their graves at the life she chose for herself. Red craves the streets, and will cross anyone, friends included, to get what she wants. She steps deeper in the game, making her dirtier than she already is--so dirty that she will betray both Cha and Goldie, leading to horrifying consequences. Dirty to the Grave goes harder than Karen Williams has ever gone, with an explosive ending that will shock you and make you wonder: Are your friends really your friends? They say life is hard from the cradle to the grave, and once you think people can't get any dirtier, they do!

Begin to end grabs your attention Highly recommend ! a keeper off the chain even if youf not into street novels you'll like this better than expected couldn't get enough written well won't be disappointed great escape entertained wow!
You know that saying: With friends like these who needs enemies - well that goes without saying in this story.
it was well worth the two days i spent reading this i love Karen Williams books cant wait to read more by hurt i was just upset that Cha did what she did(i think that's her name) over all it was a decent book.
I don't know what book the other reader was reading, but this book oozed realism. I was in awe of the events that went on in the book. I can't help but look at my friends past and present and even myself as a friend a little differently. Karen williams did an a+ job is giving me a different and adventureous read. i am anxiously waiting the next release from this beast of an author.
I was so disapointed when i read this book. It was terrible. I didn't like the plot the characters or the ending. It was depressing and just when i thought things would be looking up for a change boom another tragic or disturbing event would take place. I am all for reality. I know everything isn't all roses all the time but come on this book was one distubing event after another. I really wish i hadn't read it and i gave it away soon as i was finished. This is just my opinion though, to each his own. I just didn't enjoy it and thought it was disturbing
